Life with K2

Peanut "brittle" is traditionally made at home in small little balls, and we call them "kadalai mittAi" (peanut sweet). K2, after he comes home from school and has his snack and milk (and finishes any leftover lunch), comes and sits up close to me on the sofa and we read a few books together. I call this "cuddly mittAi" time. When his elfin, naughty face looks at me and his eyes twinkle, he is indeed a "mittAi" and the sweetness of my love for him overwhelms me.

******************

Just caught K2 in time...he was putting liquid soap on to his toothbrush because the paste was over. In few years I might do that myself if he uses swear words!

******************

K2: When it comes to Lego, Deepamma, your grammar is very poor.
Me: Oh... Why?
K2: You keep calling them "pieces". But when I have built them together... they are "structures" !
Me, chastened and humbled: I suppose you mean my "vocabulary" is poor, but I get the idea... Early morning Lego 101 for me!

Here he is, photo taken 16 Mar '19...just about a year ago.
